Jigsaw is focused on helping users confront threats in the face of conflict, instability, or repression. While today such users represent a fraction of the Internet community, in the future they will comprise the majority of Internet users. One of our stated goals is to try and end online repressive censorship within a decade, using initiatives like Project Shield, a service to protect at-risk websites from attacks that threaten free expression.
Jigsaw is a unit within Google that explores threats to open societies, and builds technology that inspires scalable solutions. Jigsaw teams focus on four primary threats: censorship, disinformation, hate and harassment, and violent extremism. We forecast emerging threats online, build technology to protect people, and enable journalists, activists, and others on the frontlines to take action.
Jigsaw’s Research & Development team uses an array of research methodologies, from ethnographic studies, behavioral psychology experiments, and Machine Learning models to forecast emerging threats and demonstrate the potential of interventions.
